Pytvshows is a python script for downloading .torrent files from trvrss.net or eztv.it. The configuration is very easy and pytvshows remembers the series you already watched.
== Installation ==
#redirect [[ArchWiki:Archive]]
[https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=15263 Pytvshows] is in [[AUR]]
== Configuration ==
Create a file named {{ic|.pytvshows.cfg}} in your home directory.
In this file you are going to fill in your series in this syntax for example south park:
  episode = x
  season = y
  episode = 5
  season = 5
note that x and y are variables, you can fill in the season and episode number you already have watched like x = 14 & y = 12
also note that + means a whitespace, you must always add this symbol for a whitespace if you do not do that the script will not work.
== Running pytvshows ==
Now you can start running pytvshows by default the output directory is your ~/  you can change that:
#pytvshows --output_dir=/home/<user>/torrents/
For more options run:
#pytvshows --help
Let your bittorent client watch the directory where you download your torrents so they are automatically  added.
If you want to run pytvshows in the background, first make a bash script:
# #!/bin/bash
  echo -n “tvshows.sh - “; date # log current date & time
  pytvshows  --output_dir=/home/<user>/torrents/ --verbose >> ~/scripts/pytvshows.log
As you can see, log the output of pytvshows
Then add this script to cron:
#crontab -e (as normal user, using pytvshows as root is not recommended)
#30 * * * * /home/<user>/scripts/tvshows.sh
Please use a other time otherwise it will get to many hits at the same time.
